struts frozen or not will not control how close the tires are to the strut. The tire and lower portion of the strut move of one. The compresson/rebound point is about the strut base

It depends on who does it. If you are doing it by yourself, I would allow at least a couple of hours on each side, although it should take no more than one per side. If you have air tools and a lift, it should take between an hour or two from start to finish, since removing wheels, bolts etc would be fast. Hope this helps you, Rick

Rear disc brakes have to also apply the parking brakes.
To do that, they must not retract too far.
That is accomplished with a one way ratched down the center of the piston, on the back side.
So most rear pistons have to be rotated CW in order to retract down this spiral ratchet.
Not sure exactly how Pontiac works, but there is probably a large slot in the piston to allow for this.

Not that I know of the only thing I know of is to take it to either a body shop or a welder and have a plate welded into place. How old is the escort, it may not be worth the cost. How is the rest of the car rust wise?

If it is just a matter of removing the old unit complete and installing a complete unit then it is that easy. If you are removing the unit to replace the shock, then you will need a spring compressor. Or, if you take off the unit and take it to your local auto parts, which has a service dept. they will replace the shock for a small fee.
